The exact cause of tinnitus is not yet known

However, there are known circumstances under which tinnitus often develops.

Slide 1
Why do some people get tinnitus and others don't?

TinnitusHouse tries to answer this question by comparing the data of large numbers of patients.

Tinnitus is not a disease

It is a condition of the brain, such as sleepiness or dizziness, for which no solution has yet been found that works for everyone.

Crowd Science

In addition to clinical research, TinnitusHouse uses data science: recognizing patterns in large amounts of patient data.

About tinnitus

Tinnitus is the experiencing of irritating sounds that do not enter through the ear. Almost everyone knows the temporary, annoying ringing in the ear after a rock concert or other noisy event. But for some, the sounds never stop, even after many years. They are sometimes so disturbing to them that normal daily life is no longer possible. . . . . read more >>.

About TinnitusHouse

Tinnitus House is established as part of the Foundation Brain Innovations and has set itself the goal of collecting data from as many patients as possible in order to gain insight into the factors that cause tinnitus to occur and the factors that can cause tinnitus to decrease or disappear completely. We would like to invite you to join our fully anonymised Tinnitus Panel to answer questionnaires on a regular basis. . . .. read more >>

Research & Development

Tinnitus is caused by the auditory organ or nerves transmitting signals that get the meaning “sound” in the brain, without there actually being any sounds. One of the main causes is hearing loss. Hearing loss can be a result of the normal aging process, but also of noise damage or of another cause such as infection, heredity, after surgery, etc.

Peer Support

Although there is no clear-cut solution to the Tinnitus problem, it has been found that it can be helpful to exchange experiences with fellow sufferers. In some cases it can help to break through the negative thoughts about tinnitus, to give the perspective that one can also live with tinnitus and to change the (emotional) response to it. .

Help find a solution

From the questionnaires of the Tinnitus Panel, a team of scientists generates hypotheses for possible causes and remedies, and the most promising remedies are then tested in a laboratory situation, so called - The Tinnitus room with tinnitus patients. The test results from the Tinnitus Room are then used again to ask new, more targeted questions to the Tinnitus Panel.
